Medical imaging techniques are of paramount value in clinical medicine and as research tools. The techniques are rapidly improving and new techniques are continuously implemented.
Whereas every technique has advantages and shortcoming the imaging techniques are often complementary and therefore a current trend is integration of different imaging techniques for hybrid imaging.
Examples of such synergistic hybrid imaging is PET/CT that is now more common than PET only scans. Recently, also hybrid PET/MRI scanners have been introduced in clinical use. Also developments for combining ultrasonography with the other modalities are on their way. Especially integration of morphological and functional imaging seems to be useful. However, also combination of several functional modalities may add value and allow for better tissue characterization.
This special issue invites submission of both original and review papers within all aspects of hybrid imaging.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Diagnostics is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
